Its physically different shape will probably require you to modify your case to accept a conventional power supply. Just did a quick search and found an Ebay active sale and an on-line store that had your power supply for a reasonable amount. That might be a more reasonable alternative for you. Ebay: Other guy:

Hey i resently got an (HP Envy H8-1414) And baught

You need to check the color, and order of the wires on all the connectors to make sure you don't short something out. Just because it fits doesn't mean it has the same configuration or voltage as the old power supply. This is especially true of the motherboard connector.

The only thing to do at this point is to replace the Power Supply with a KNOWN to be good, compatible unit, and see if the rest of the computer hardware components are okay.

Going by your information stated that the Power Supply is an Enhance ENP-2224B SMPS, (Switched-Mode Power Supply), it is a special shape.

If it wasn't for the Slim Micro-ATX computer case you have, you could use an easy to obtain ATX form factor Power Supply.

From a quick search though it looks like a replacement unit is affordable,

There is simply no way to tell if the motherboard, and/or Processor, and/or Ram Memory, and/or Harddrive, etc., is okay without having power.
Unless you transfer the components on the motherboard to another working motherboard.

If your Power Supply has a rocker switch on the back that lets you use 120 volts, or 220 volts, make SURE it is set to the right voltage.

120 Volts
220 Volts
220 Volts
100 Volts ]

Power Suply Replacement

Any good computer supply company should handle power supplies. The important thing is to get one rated for the same power. (300W, 350W, 400W, etc.) You can always go higher, but not lower.
